I have watched about 5 episodes of season 1 and am struggling to get into it. I love American politics ( Daily Show is my fav show ) but feel it hasn't dated well.. Is it worth sticking with it? Will it get better it ran forever so people must have loved it?

I can't agree! If you aren't grabbed by that opening episode, why the hell not?

Wolfcub - wow! We're avid box-setters but you set a new standard! How long does it take you?

Sorry for shouting blush I've watched it from start to end loads a few times and it is the best thing ever fact! grin
I still want to be CJ when I grow up.

Did anyone see the other WW thread, there's a YouTube reunion thingy featuring most of the case. DP and I oohed and aahed...

We've been doing some decorating and everything has been packed away, but we're going to dig out the season one boxset and start watching it again tonight. Stay with it, it's definitely worth it.

Nothing else to add except to say...
I vote Jed Bartlett grin

Piggy, Stockard Channing is very in and out until Season 3, when she becomes a regular.

Glad you're sticking with it, if nothing else you'll look at the actual US elections in a whole new light grin

Actually we watched 2 more last night stockard channing finally appeared was wondering when I would see her and it wasn't too bad. Looking at the Discs to come on love film there are so many more episodes to go for season 1 so will 100% contuine .. Actually all these amazing reviews has made me excitied to watch the rest

Best series ever!!!! I must ask for the box set for Christmas smile

IslaValargeone Wed 03-Oct-12 08:41:34

Another one for you must continue.
Season one is worth watching just for the 'Josh meets Joey Lucas' episode alone.
Cj's root canal..priceless!

Gosh the ending of season 1 is some of the best of the whole programme - you don't want to miss that.

I've just finished all 7 seasons and tell you, you MUST continue smile

And don't jump ahead to the first two episodes of season 2! They do give you more background, but you will totally spoil the ending of season 1, which is totally amazing!

celestial couldn't agree more! In fact I think I'll watch some again only for maybe the 5th time!
I was so gutted when i had finished watching the whole thing because there was nothing more to watch anew. Got the book though- episode companion which explains many concepts and incidents through out the series. I think the book covered till series 3 though.

Good grief! If you can stick with the Wire (which is genius, but certainly not an easy viewing option) or Mad Men (beautiful but....erm....slow) then you can def stick with the WW. Heresy, woman!! But yes- carry on.

Northernlurker Wed 03-Oct-12 08:22:31

Keep going. We love it - and yes we loop it. We're just starting Season 6 again - probably the 50th time..........

ZombiesAreClammyDodgers Wed 03-Oct-12 08:21:52

wolfcub I know! That character is really annoying.

FrankelSaysRelax Wed 03-Oct-12 08:14:53

Have you watched any more? At the very least stick with the whole of Season 1. I don't want to give away any spoilers, but you'll want to start Season 2 right after wink

Wolfcub Mon 01-Oct-12 20:14:45

Yes absolutely stick with it, it gets better in season two when the most annoying character drops off the face of the planet. DH and I watch the whole thing once every year.

CalamityKate Mon 01-Oct-12 20:08:57

What's it about then?

chipsandpeas Mon 01-Oct-12 20:02:20

yes yes yes one of the best shows ever

SkiBumMum Mon 01-Oct-12 20:01:49


envy you're only just starting

Osmiornica Mon 01-Oct-12 20:00:07

Yes, yes and yes. I took a few episodes before I really got into it but have just finished the box set for the second time. It's fab.

LittleBearPad Mon 01-Oct-12 19:56:42

Definitely stick with it. It was wonderful

tribpot Mon 01-Oct-12 19:54:57

Keep going - it's worth it! So many great moments ahead. Has Joey Lucas arrived yet?

MrsJohnDeere Mon 01-Oct-12 19:50:34

Yes, you must stick with it! THE best thing ever on TV.
